Introducing the perfect pet for stoners!
This is the fist aquarium made just for jellyfish! Other salt water aquariums will suck up the creature thats 90% water. But now, thanks to Kickstarter donors designer Alex Andon has created a way to keep your floating friends as pets.
Huffington Post explains how the tank works:
The Desktop Jellyfish Tank pulls water through a layer of rocks at the bottom of the tank. The water is then pulled up one side of the cylindrical tank to the surface. It then goes back down the other side and is sucked up once again by the rocks.
What's cooler than having an exotic pet? Having a tank that lights up with multii-colored LED lights! Yeah, no one is trying to hide the stoner appeal.
Each fish will cost $39 and will be shipped overnight from the company’s breeding center. You can also buy frozen plankton from Jellyfish Art, which is what the little critters dine on. A $350 donation will get you a spot on the waiting list.

Anyone want a gorilla?
Two African governments are working together to try to find homes for 6 orphaned baby gorillas. The baby gorillas had been stolen by poachers.
The Mountain Gorillas are between the ages of 5 and 8. They were smuggled out of the Democratic Republic of Congo into Rwanda. Authorities believe they were going to be sold by unknown buyers. They also believe the gorillas' parents were killed.
The gorillas were rescued by Rwandan authorities, treated by doctors and then flown to a new gorilla rescue center where they will be introduced to other rescued gorillas.
Eventually they will be released back into the wild.

Last month, the San Diego Zoo posted this video of a seven-month-old baby hippo learning to swim with his mama.
Adhama's care supervisor Matt Akel told the Daily Mail that the burgeoning dancer was born in January weighing 100 pounds.
"It's interesting that Adhama's personality has definitely blossomed. He's playing around with his mum and mouthing his mum. You see her push him around, but she's just playing. You see him stand up on the rock to take a breath, spin sideways and tumble in the water."
Sounds like fun! Next time invite us!!

Earlier this summer the National Zoo said their female panda might be pregnant. But it looks like it was just gas.
It was poor Mei Xiang sixth false pregnancy in total.
Mei has been artificially inseminated each year since the year after her only cub, Tai Shan, was born in 2005.
The announcement means that the zoo probably will try only one more time for a panda pregnancy with Mei. If she does not become pregnant during next year’s cycle, she, and perhaps her mate, Tian Tian, are liable to be replaced, zoo officials have said.
